Our Vita videos of Ninja Gaiden 2

After a first successful port of Ninja Gaiden on PS Vita, it is no surprise to see the arrival of NNinja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus this week. Technically though, it is a bit of a disappointment this time, with framerate issues and poor in-game graphics overall. The game even tends to be very pixelated from time to time (when you leave the menu or when too many enemies or effects are on screen - as can be seen here), which is not particularly pretty even on a 5 inches screen. That being said, if you can go past the technical issues, it still remains a very good game in the genre, as challenging as you need it to be, especially in the hardest difficulty settings.

Yes, at least to a certain extent. I have to say I didn't pay attention all the time. :)

This isnt pure Ninja Gaiden 2 though Driftwood :)
Its a port of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 content + (extra content for Vita), hence the name.

Anyways, its a shame they can patch in gore into the PS3 version like they added it in Vita :(

Is Sigma 2 native res. Sigma 1 had a dynamic solution that would display native res and the game looks sharp for it I hope that is also the case here otherwise it is a no buy.

No, you typed "Ninja Gaiden 2" even though thats half true. I honestly thought it was NG2 from 360 on vita so i was confused for a bit.

I mistyped Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma 2 Plus the first time I wrote the description, and then I corrected. The title of the news I had no choice, the original (and long) title didn't fit. :p

    jmd749 At 1st I was worried about burn in with OLEDs and the nano TV sounded great, but most argue it's a none issue once you use a bit of common sense. [url] (1 Hour ago)

    jmd749 @Melmoth: Sweet! I couldn't afford a 65" OLED(saving 4 a house). :( Was gonna get a 65" nano tech LG LED, similar input lag, but opted for the better picture quality with the 55" OLED. No regrets! :) (2 Hours ago)
